STEP INTO NATURE in this one-of-a-kind property. Nestled into the landscape, this home offers the ultimate in privacy and tranquility. A testament to biophilic design – connecting people with nature through architecture – the home incorporates functional and beautiful natural materials such as bristlecone pine, travertine, granite and copper; the windows are oriented to capture exquisite views of the Sandia mountains, all natural light and the cycles of the sun and moon. Stargaze through a 5’ diameter skylight above the master bed or relax in the master’s private sauna. The creative genius of the owner, a master musician, artist and environmentalist, is seen in the two-story adobe tower, 26’ in diameter and featuring natural materials, such as oak leaves and crushed rose petals embedded into the plaster walls and above it all a rooftop observation deck featuring 360 degree views. Celebrate the solstices on the grounds at “Stonehenge” – a 50% sized replica of England’s prehistoric stone circle. This passive solar with radiant heat 4 bedroom/3 bathroom home also includes a 700 sqft studio with full bath, kitchen and private entrance; a three-car heated garage with direct entry; solar hot water and solar electric with batteries and state-of-the-art security system.
